ROGERS PARK — The neighborhood could get at least eight Divvy bike-sharing stations this year, according to a city proposal detailed by Ald. Joe Moore (49th).
The city has been planning to install 175 new stations throughout Chicago in an effort to fill in service gaps, especially in the most far-flung neighborhoods like Rogers Park and Edgewater.
Chicago Department of Transportation Spokesman Peter Scales said a complete list of new proposed stations had yet to be finalized, but a document distributed by Moore shows eight new stations south of Touhy Avenue in Rogers Park.
Moore said the city plans to install stations north of Touhy Avenue "in the near future."
The document also shows five other stations in parts of Edgewater and West Rogers Park.
In the 49th Ward, proposed locations include:
• Southeast corner of Ridge and Touhy avenues
• Southeast corner of Clark Street and Touhy Avenue
• Northeast corner of Sheridan Road and Greenleaf Avenue (moved from proposed location)
• Southeast corner of Clark Street and Lunt Avenue
• Northeast corner of Glenwood and Morse avenues
• Northeast corner of Clark Street and Columbia avenues
• Southwest corner of Sheridan Road and Albion Avenue
Other proposed locations on the Far North Side include at:
• Clark Street and Devon Avenues
• Western and Devon avenues
• Ridge Avenue and Pratt Boulevard
• Indian Boundary Park
• Warren Park
• North Broadway and Granville Avenue
Moore and the city plan to present more details about the proposal during a public meeting 7 p.m. Thursday, at the Eugene Field School auditorium, 7019 N. Ashland Ave.
The city will also present at the meeting plans for a proposed bike route that would connect Edgewater and Evanston along Glenwood Avenue, Pratt Boulevard and Greenview Avenue, Moore said.
